his sacrifices to the sacrifices of two parents who lost their son in war. how would you answer that father? what sacrifice have you made for your country? i think i've made a lot of sacrifices, built great structures. i've had tremendous success, i think...

9/11 attacks. clinton's campaign initially did not reveal she was diagnosed with pneumonia on friday. but they now say they will be more forthcoming about her health. donald trump says he had a physical last week and promises to release the results soon. we are learning more about pneumonia and recovering from it now. it is pretty rail and develops after the body has been infected with joining us right now is dr. rodney foals. welcome, doctor. >> welcome. thank you. >> romona: let's talk about pneumonia. first of all, how do you get it how does one come down with it. >> well, you get pneumonia by having exposure to different types of micro-organisms that get into your lungs but not only do they get in your lungs they have to evade normal ways to get
once they get into the lungs and start to grow and set up inside the lungs that's what they call pneumonia. >> what are the symptoms? we saw hillary clinton on the campaign trail earlier on, coughing. how do you know if you are coming down with it or becoming ill? >> a lot of what we get tend to be colds or maybe it gets down into your bronchial tubes or it is bronchitis. if it gets to the lungs and a variety of symptoms with it, coughing is probably the most common. you will see fevers. some people will have chills. you will have headaches, fatigue and being very tired. all those can be reminiscent of someone who has pneumonia. >> doctor, a lot of people expressed concern about hillary. both these presidential candidates are older candidates. she is 68.
on and off planes. they are shaking hands every day. are you more susceptible when you do that? >> you know, you probably are. it is a disease that can you get from exposure. we do recommend for people who are in large groups or crowds to wash your hands when you are done. and also being around people infection or cold, you are more susceptible to getting it as well. >> what's the treatment? we have been told she will skip a few appearances. how long does it take for one to get over pneumonia? >> you know, people underestimate how long it takes to get over pneumonia. people can be affected especially older individual over
take weeks to really get over that pneumonia. we treat pneumonias in a different way. pneumonias can be caused by bacteria and we give antibiotics which are the most common ways to get pneumonia from bacteria and you can get it from viruses and can you get it from fungi and they are treated differently. a lot of times with viruses and more supportive care and rest, lots taking perhaps some tylenol to help with some of the chills that you get. primarily antibiotics, usually five days of antibiotics is what is prescribed. >> all right. dr. rodney fultz, thank you for joining us and sharing insight on pneumonia. thank you. >> romona: joining us now to talk about what hillary's sickness means for her run for
>> mark: dr. jay, here we go, at the very least concerns and a lot came from out of nowhere in the past weeks about hillary clinton's condition and now, you know it is legit. we have some possibilities here with pneumonia. what do you think it means? >> i don't think it means anything to anybody. i will be honest with you. this plays into exactly what donald trump wants to talk about. he's always had this idea that people are low energy and you let's be honest. number one, being president of the united states, you don't have to lead us into battle against the vikings. you don't have to take a spaceship and fight off aliens. you have to be physically capable of doing the job. hillary clinton falling over because of heat exhaustion or pneumonia, that happens. it is not cancer. it is not heart disease and not alzheimer's. i don't think it does anything to someone who will already vote
bolster people who may not vote for her or were voting for donald trump. >> romona: were you surprised by donald trump's reaction to her pneumonia diagnosis. it didn't seem trump-like. what do you think? >> you know, not really. there's little donald trump does that surprises me at this point. i will say this. it is fascinating that trump has decided he will release some of his medical records now to compare himself to hillary clinton but he still won't release his tax return, which is something almost every presidential candidate has done for 40 years. >> mark: would something like this in this case, does it take, i don't know how to explain it, take the whole physicality out of this? does it reveal a kinder, gentler, quote, unquote, donald trump, because you won't go
released because they have been sick for awhile. we are two weeks away from the presidential debate. the last thing donald trump wants to do is really try to go in on whether hillary clinton is physically capable and proud and she comes and does back flips on stage or makes a joke about it when they are debating each other. this is a reflection of trump's campaign team and tone it down on certain things and attack her as a person and attacking somebody with a normal sickness t >> romona: jason, we are quickly running out of time. tell us what your thoughts on calling half of donald trump's supporters deplorables. >> she said half of trump's supporters are racists and bigots and by polling we know it is true. by supporting trump they think president obama is a muslim and that disqualifies us and thinks
didn't say all people who are voting for donald trump happen to feel that way. >> this is very different. isn't that something her surrogates hear them say rather than coming out of her mouth and people were surprised. >> mark: it is romney at a dinner party. a reversion of this. >> i think it is different. what romney said, 47% of voters out there are never going t they like getting treats from the government. i thought that was romney saying i quit. it is closer to barack obama saying in 2008 that when the economy isn't working well people cling to guns and religion and it is more an attitude of a candidate saying, look, there's certain people who will support this other candidate because they are frustrated and we need to speak to some of those people frustrated as opposed to people
we have seen at donald trump rallies some things said and done. and i don't have a problem with what hillary clinton said and i am glad she didn't entirely back away from it. >> for fun purposes follow dr. jason johnson on twitter for nfl takes on sunday. they are very funny intermingled with political talk and we appreciate you taking the time today. >> sorry about rg iii, guys. >> romona: you had to bring it up. live from the first alert weather center your hour forecast. all right. i follow him on twitter. look at his pick there is. >> all right. let's look at the sunshine here. beautiful shot out over the lake. you know, when you see forever like that, that's how you know you are in dry air. as a result, cool tonight with clear sky, great sleeping conditions and warmer tomorrow and not that humid. we have the alert wednesday for nonsevere showers and storms we are forecasting.
spot we have dover new philly 81. 75 in sandusky and we will go with about 73 at 7. 66 at 10:00 and downtown cleveland by morning around 59. it will be cooler i would and here is the next alert day wednesday with showers and storms and right now i am leaning towards the first half of the day and we will see this rain 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and these will not be severe eventh mostly sunny tomorrow. 83 the high. 61 at 8:00 a.m. 71 at 11:00 and early afternoon 81. enjoy it. mark, back to you. >> all right, jeff. thank you very much. earlier this year two parma teens put themselves in a great deal of danger and waved realistic bb guns at a public park. paul orlousky found the judge wanted to send them a message and one to all teens.
an incident in parma shows not everyone lerped them. >> it looks like two kids have a gun in the pavilion. i don't know if they are real. >> the phone call to parma police was hauntingly similar that drew officers to tamir rice at cudell. first an officer stays back and the two boys put the air soft guns down and hands up. >> the case has been in juvenile court for some time and attorneys for the boys fought to keep the media the magistrate got assurances from cleveland 19 there was no intention to identify the boys. >> anything that might identify the juvenile. >> okay, thank you. >> that is consistent with your editorial policy? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: with that we stayed. the interesting story is the judge's punishment. community service, fine and essays on the disarrange the pair put themselves into by flashing the guns. one wrote: i have to start thinking before i do stuff. not thinking before you do stuff have you messed up. >> the other wrote.
whatnot to do. i am done with bb guns and any gun in general. >> thank youfully will you be here to learn a lesson. >> the boy's cases were dismissed taking with them an important lesson. >> the judge doing this will be a teaching matter for all. >> reporter: asking questions, getting answers, paul orlousky. and the high school was closed today after a fire damaged part of the building school won't be in session tomorrow. >> investigators believe it started in the building's maintenance office. it was contained and some smoke got into a nearby hallway. the cause of the fire is being investigated but not suspicious. luckily, no one was injured. coming up, i will take time out and so did robert griffin iii. the vip phone call interrupting his press conference.
now for a quick timeout with romona and tony. >> romona: i really don't know how much more i can take, i am sure browns fans out there feel the same way. what is it? >> the season hasn't even gotten started quite yet. >> here is the problem. if you missed it, rg on injured reserve now with a fractured bone in the left shoulder. here is the problem with this. it is not that the offense can't function with josh mccown, you
playing a 37-year-old quarterback who is not the future. they go in on rg and say listen we hope he is a long term player and now derailed by injuries killing his career in washington. >> romona: was robert griffin the long term plan? forgive me, but what i have seen so far? >> he is doing all the wrong things. >> romona: he was overthrowing a lot. there were dropped balls but he was overthrowing. >> tony: listen, again, they quarterback next year-round one. here is the thing about rg before he got the bad news. yesterday you know who had his back? who. >> his mom. >> make sure those things we continue to improve. sorry about that, guys. it's my mother. she is really worried about me. >> tony: i love it. >> romona: moms do that.
he couldn't slide. this happened really fast. >> romona: we will go and support him and i will go and say hi to my friends. >> tony: i know you will pick the browns. >> romona: let's talk about something good. indians. >> tony: magic number 14. they are 7 up. moments ago, indians putting out a release. danny salazar is done about a month. >> romona: he is one of our best. >> tony: he has been struggling f the mri revealed it. salazar will not be pitching the rest of the regular season and miss round 1 of the playoffs. it doesn't help. he was struggling and they have been successful. they are headed down the stretch. tiger is here friday and they can put a dagger on them. >> chris tanaka coming up.
paramedics found a heart in a local field and 95% sure it is human. we are live with the police investigation and plus officials at hopkins are planning more improvements. they want to become more efficient and reduce delays. that's good news for travelers. it is one of the most popular shows on tv and cleveland 19 wheel of fortune coming to town. we will tell you how to spin the wheel for some cash and get on the show. >> mark: vanna. get breaking news and weather now on the cleveland 19 news app powered by calvetta
